STEM Initiative


This is the first year of the STEM Initiative where the students will have the opportunity to tour the Expo, experience demonstrations, listen to Keynote speakers who are currently in the Drone and Flight Industry as well as speak one-on-one to company representatives and businesses about opportunities in these industries.  

This tour will be limited to the first 40 students who register, 20 each day.  Students may choose one day only – either Monday, August 12th or Tuesday, August 13th when registering.  The tour will be from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm each day at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC.

Students who register, and receive a confirmation email, will be welcome to attend for free.  Each student should have one (1) chaperone accompany them to the summit, and they will attend at no cost.  Each additional chaperone will need to purchase admission to the NC Drone Summit and Flight Expo through the official website.

After you register, you will receive an email letting you know if you have a spot in the STEM Initiative or if that day is full and you have been placed on a wait list.  We will contact wait list students as spots open.

We look forward to hosting students and meeting our future leaders in Drone and Flight. Please email Stacie Knuth,, for assistance or questions.
